Ok this one is a little harder and it still haven’t perfected it but the recipe is really good.

What you are going to need:

  • 1 1/2 cup chana flour (gram flour)
  • 1 cup cornflour (maizena)
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 125 ml hot water
  • oil for frying


1. Roast the cumin and caraway seeds in a pan on medium heat. Once the seeds pop remove from heat. Add 125ml hot water.Allow to infuse while you prepare the flours.

2. Combine 1 cup gram flour with 1 cup cornflour and salt. Add the liquid mixture then combine to form a smooth yet firm dough. Use the half cup chana flour to make the dough more manageable.

3. Heat the oil on medium heat.

4. Place the dough into the cookie press . Use the star like nozzle. Press into spiral forms. Place onto the back of the spatula then place into the oil.

5. Allow to fry for 7-10 minutes turning to allow even cooking. Remove from oil once crisp. Set aside on paper towels to drain excess oil.

6. Store in an airtight container.
